Psalms 64:1-10

(Of the Director; a psalm of David’s.) 64  God, hear my voice in my anxiety; you are to protect me from the dread of an enemy, 2  To screen me from a coterie of malefactors, from an aggregation of villains, 3*  Who have sharpened their tongues like swords, have drawn their arrows, bitter matter, 4*  To shoot from behind a blind at a steady man, shoot him suddenly and not be seen, 5**  Strengthen their position in a bad business, recite directions for hiding traps; They say “who sees them, 6*  searches out their foul play?” But the searching of them is done, each man’s bosom is searched, and a deep heart, 7  And God shoots an arrow at them, suddenly come their wounds, 8**  And they make him stumble; against them is their tongue; Everybody that has the sight of them will make off, 9*  and all mankind be aghast And report God’s doing and be enlightened as to his work. 10  A right-doer will rejoice in Jehovah and take refuge in him, and all who are of straightforward heart will boast.
